" IN HARMS WAY - Des McCaffrey Wildlife Art


Sometimes a story conveyed to me from someone can become the basis to a new painting. One of these stories was of a man out in the bush hunting elk with his father, when from out of the dark timber came a large grizzly bear at full charge. A quick warning shot sent over the bears head from his .300 Winchester ended the charge as the bear spun and ran off.  I was so thoroughly absorbed by the way the story was told and so vividly described that it made the hair stand on the back of my neck. This intense visualization led to the painting I titled “In Harms Way”.

🍂 Paper Giclee Print

This option is a signed and numbered print which like all of Des’s prints are produced in his studio under his strict supervision on a wide format Epson SureColor Printer.  Using only the finest Italian made 100% cotton rag paper with a smooth finish, this option is hand signed and numbered by Des and limited to an edition size of only 95 prints.  This print is shipped rolled with a certificate of authenticity and is guaranteed to arrive in mint condition.  Custom framing is required on this print which allows you to pick exactly the frame and matt combination of your choice to match your own specific decor. 

🍂 Canvas Giclee Print

The canvas version of this painting is our top of the line option and is printed with the same exacting standards as its paper counterparts but on an American made artists canvas.  This version also requires custom framing of your choosing but doesn’t require the use of glass and matts usually resulting in an overall lower framing cost.  The canvas is also shipped rolled and arrives to you signed and numbered with two coats of an archival varnish and a certificate of authenticity.  Your canvas once stretched and framed will have the closest resemblance to the original painting of all three options.  Des’s canvas editions are limited to only 50 copies for an even higher collectable value.
